Issues: (1) Whether a state law discriminates against interstate commerce in practical effect when there has been no showing of any burden on interstate commerce beyond a de minimis one; (2) whether a discriminates against interstate commerce when it only offsets a state-imposed disadvantage, does so equally for all states imposing that disadvantage, and does not affect any out-of-state business’ earned or natural advantage; and (3) whether discriminatory purpose matters in determining whether a law violates the dormant commerce clause.
